In The Talons of Hope

Writing, it is always good when it happens.  For months I have been able to daily create this blog post, but I have not been able to edit a manuscript, or do any contemplative writing.  I have been really ok with that.  I realize there is a season, a time and place…and I haven’t been in that season.  I am grateful that this blog has not been a part of that hiatus.

Last week with a greater amount of solitude and dedicated time, it was like I had a window of creativity open.  I had the opportunity to write, it flowed – I worked on one of the manuscripts, I wrote a contemplation for the other blog, in fact two, and I began a daily participation in PiBoIdMo.

PiBoIdMo is Picture Book Idea Month.  Every day I am committing to dedicating time to writing ideas for picture books, creating characters, and possible outlines, so that by the end of November, I will theoretically have 30 ideas for picture book manuscripts.  One might ask if you haven’t been able to write lately, why would you bite off such an endeavor, and I would probably answer, I don’t know.  I don’t know why I bit off a daily blog for 2012 either.  What I do know though, is that the concept of just writing ideas seemed less threatening than writing a novel or a picture book, and thus far it is working.  I am grateful.

All that to say, and so this haiku.

Blessings to each of you today.
